    Episode 7: Use Caution with Labels

    Episode 7: Use Caution with Labels

    As adults, it’s really easy for us to put labels on kids. Shy, wild, reserved, outgoing. Smart, stubborn, dawdler, defiant.

    It’s normal that we have ideas about who our kids are and who they’re going to grow up to be. But we need to step back, and let our kids decide that for themselves. They will tell us who they are.

    In this episode of Learn Their Way, we’ll talk about why we need to be careful putting labels on our kids -- even positive ones -- and why we all need to take a break and rest every once in a while.

    Episode 5: Strengthening Attention Spans

    Episode 5: Strengthening Attention Spans

    The most common concern I hear from parents is that their children can’t sit still, can’t focus, can’t stay on task — at meals, during school or homework time, or when a parent is talking.

    It is completely NORMAL for children to have short attention spans. That doesn’t mean we can’t work on it, to build stamina over time.

    In this episode of Learn Their Way, you’ll hear five simple, practical tips for strengthening attention spans at home.

    Episode 3: Myths About Learning Styles

    Episode 3: Myths About Learning Styles

    Our kids are all unique, and, as their parents, we get to inspire, empower, and encourage them to learn their way. And the first step to personalizing their learning at home and in the classroom is understanding what makes them unique.

    Learning styles can be a helpful tool for ensuring that children are given lots of opportunities to learn something new. They can also help us communicate better with teachers, navigate homework struggles, and enjoy learning together.

    In this episode, we discuss three myths about learning styles and how we can use them to help our children learn, in and out of the classroom.
